Watch The Walking Dead #TheWayYouWantIt!

Some people like chocolates. Some people like clothes. Me --I like zombies. So it's really no surprise that I'm addicted to that zombie bonanza TV hit, The Walking Dead. And, the best way to watch it is through another addiction: Sky Cable.

I'd like to think I'm a survivor myself. A freelancer relentlessly hunting for money-making ventures is pretty much like a zombie apocalypse survivor hunting for supplies. I fight competition (aka, huge ad agencies and other freelancers) and also get to kill zombies (aka, bills, debt, uncertainty, insecurities, panic, drama) that come along with going solo. FUN!

On the downside, this kind of business takes up time. In fact, this is how I miss my favourite shows.

That's not a problem with Sky Cable's #TheWayYouWantIt iRecord. This genius feature allows me to take control of my TV viewing by letting me watch The Walking Dead when I'm good and ready. No more beating-the-traffic-rushing-home-panic to get my zombie fill. Woot!

And it doesn't stop there. Sky Cable gives you a world of limitless possibilities with its widest selection of channels and different ways to enjoy it.

You can add packs and channels that you like to your basic plan.

Get the most number of standard definition (SD) and high definition (HD) channels.

And, get access to special shows and events through Sky Cable Pay-Per-View and Free View.
Oooh yeeeah... the possibilities are endless.

So if you're anything like me, take control by hooking this up in your TV viewing survival kit: Sky Cable #TheWayYouWantIt!

The Inspiration that is TOBIAS KWAN.

I would like to shed massive spotlight and a hefty amount of drum roll to my newest favorite artist, Tobias Kwan.
WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE?!! This guy is incredible! Just look at his doodles! His roughs make my roughs look like day-old pigeon potty.

His taste for the dark, the disturbing, and the bizarre makes me feel like I have a connection with him. Eherm... a very far connection. From point A which is his breathtaking pencil concepts to point Z which is my day-old pigeon potty. Damn, do I have a long way to go!

His colored work makes me want to explore color, too. I've always had this fear of color. Let's call it Colorophobia for conversation's sake. It kills the emotional rawness of your art, in my opinion. But Tobias (first name basis... yesss!) made me realize that hues don't have to do that. He chooses dark tinges with bright surprises here and there --which catches your attention, but doesn't take away your right to deeper imagination.

Oops, have I fangirled too much?

Check out more of Tobias Kwan's work here. Be weirded out or be inspired, it's your choice. The important thing is that he's touched you, and made you think.
